Kria Guesthouse
Ranked #3 of 13 Borgarnes B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We stayed at Kria Guesthouse for two nights and we loved it! It is a modern 2-rooms appartement, which seems to have been renovated recently.
The rooms are nice, modern and very clean. The beds are comfortable. The shared bathroom is spacious and since there are only two rooms in total, sharing is not a problem. The breakfast was perfect: homemade bread, pancakes, jam, cheese, yoghurt, fruits...
There is also a hot pot in the garden, which can be used by the guests - the view is amazing as the house is perfectly located at the ocean :)
We stayed here to visit Snaefellsnes. It is a bit of driving, but we would do it exactly the same way again and highly recommend staying here!

All the reviews said it already...this guesthouse is a gem. The guesthouse has two rooms and a shared bathroom. We had the double room that offered a picture window view of the ocean and bird life. Sitting on the bed you can watch the wonderful changes in the light and wildlife activities. The rooms are decorated beautifully, with lovely bathrobes in addition to towels. The common room featured a fully stocked kitchen and a sitting area that was very inviting. There is a hot tub that was perfect, available for your private use. There is free wifi. Breakfast was very good with fresh fruit, cheese, eggs, cereal and bread. Coffee and tea were provided to make your own. Margaret was a wonderful hostess. She is also a hairdresser and having a few spare hours had my hair cut by her. I got one of the best cuts ever and only £20!!! If only I can figure out how I can return for more cuts without it costing a fortune. Recommended restaurant is The Settlement House. Local swimming pool and hot tubs are excellent. Borganes turned out to be a wonderful surprise.

Room Tip: Settlement House restaurant is excellent. Local swimming pool has great facilities.

I went here with my son in august 2013, and it was a woundful place with nice clean rooms.

The small guesthouse is quiet and the view of the ocean is beautiful.

There is wifi, parking and its close to the city center, shopping and an excellent public swimming pool (for kids)

Can't say enough about Margaret. Her selfless hospitality is hard to find, even in Iceland. Very clean, wonderful breakfast, beautiful setting on the end of a small peninsula. For Americans, the idea of a shared bathroom is a little unsettling, but it all worked out just fine. There's only two rooms available so there really is no problem. The town is very nice, as well. Highly recommended.

Margrét is the most wonderful host you can imagine. Rooms are super clean and nicely decorated, breakfast is outstanding (freshly baked bread, different kinds of fresh fruits, yoghurts, juices, etc.). Kitchen and all necessairy supplies are available. Bathroom is huge and sterile. There is a hot tub, a terrace and a beautiful view. Perfect option for a stay in Borganes.

Beautiful place with a stunning view onto the ocean.
Charming and highly caring landlady baking home-made bread for the guests and fresh eggs from their (native Icelandic) chicken in the garden.
Good base for day tours.
Strong recommendation.
